SIIPHRAA CONDEMNED SELECTIVE CDF DISTRIBUTION
The Solomon Islands Indigenous Peoples Human Rights Advocacy Association (SIIPHRAA) has condemned in strongest terms the selective distribution of projects under the Constituency Development Fund (CDF).
SIIPHRAA says it is becoming a trend that MPs only prioritise their voters projects.
Chief Executive Officer of SIIPHRAA, Moses Ramo told SIBC News, this is discrimination according to the laws of this country.
“So I see this as a discrimination and SIIPHRAA’s view is that our national leaders are entertaining a higher discrimination. Discrimination itself is a crime so when you favour someone saying this person didn’t vote for me so he’s out, that is discrimination and our law is against discrimination and I believe that almost all constituencies have practiced such favouritism, so our position on such a practice is we condemned it in the strongest term.”
